Towering infermo*

 

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

As it is well known, and proved daily, the road to hell is paved with the best intentions. Let’s hope that Trump’s intentions are not too good. Let’s hope he is not like a dog which caught that so desirable car and instead of chewing a tyre to immobilise it he runs around, embarrassed, waggling his tail. Let’s hope he is not like Pauline Hanson in Australia / Pauline Hanson please explain

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.
